Preach on Lurk, preach on—
You know you telling the truth!
There is that changing speeds thing as well.
When I was a 11-year old kid, there was a pitcher named Johnny Russell that terrified me. First off he was big and ugly, could throw really hard and had no clue of his pitch's final destination. Also, he had eyeglasses that looked like the bottoms of coke bottles and from his balance point forward he would close his eyes and shake his head vigorously back and forth as if saying no and grunt loudly when he released. It was an effective delivery. By the time the ball crossed the plate or arrived at the backstop I had usually fled the batter's box.
I know .. I mean the beer. It was Thirsty Thursday at Jackie Robinson stadium in Daytona for the opener.
Jonathan India hit 3 rd and played third for our Tortugas.
Byrne and Kosavarsay also on the roster.
Somehow I was in a suite with all the beer I could drink. Unfortunately it was Bud Lite. Had about 2 and a half . What a pitiful excuse for a beer. I guarantee u guys I will wake up
With a big ass headache
That is 2.5 more Bud Lites than I would drink.
In the world of #MeToo, I am a dinosaur but WTH???? 2.5 Bud Lights? Less than 6 isn’t even considered drinking!!!
I’m no Bud Light fan either—but a headache on 2 1/2 beers? Don’t know if I would’ve said that out loud—
All he needed were contact lenses with sparkled like the Predator’s eyes. Do they have lenses with fluorescence?
Yeah horns as soon as I hit send I knew I messed up. I did have a bourbon and it made everything allright
I know I know
That’s why you are the professor!!!
Me thinks you “misremember”. In 2016 I was at the Buchholz Gainesville High city rivalry game with Santa Fe coaches who had a gun. He threw a no hitter and was pumping 94-95 in the 5th inning as a Junior. It was ridiculous.
Gators Hit the Road to Ole Miss - Florida Gators
A) Sully keeping his cards close
B) why is Dyson not listed? Could we see 2 new starters?
Both good observation and good question—I would say—
A) That’s a winner’s practice, start to finish—
B) When a SP has been struggling or underperforming and he seems to otherwise be healthy a lot of times a HC will determine if he starts based on his focus and performance of his scheduled “tune-up” pen before his scheduled start—If Sully likes what he sees, he makes the call—if he doesn’t like what he sees he makes a change—
This is just my opinion from my own past with the game—
Those Tortugas marketing guys need some reevaluation....$5 to park, $11 ticket for an exhibition game, and insanely overpriced concessions and beer. Not conducive to draw a crowd in that market
You talking about 50-75 including ushers @apkgator?
I saw that they had over 4000 on opening night. The few I've been to in Tampa have been pretty much family and friends.
That’s where my 50-75 came from—
They do a big promo for opening night, but other games I have been to there had more staff than fans....they have an army of retired guys making sure you sit in the right empty seat.....sounds like the next career move for wingtee
Got me thinking. Dys has been good for 1-2 innings and throws heat at 95-96, until mechanics fail him. He’s experienced. That kinda sounds like a...?
